Sehnst Du Dich nach Deinem Traum-Strand? Enjoying the sun on your body, the sound of the waves going deeper in your brain, connecting with harmony and nature? Put your self together. Und komm zu uns, komm zum MATKOT-Strand. Nir de Volff / TOTAL BRUTAL garantiert Dir schreiende Babys, kläffende Hunde und hunderte von Beachball-Spielern und nackten Körpern, die näher und näher kommen. On our strand you get a daily fresh supply of mud and the extra thrilling sound of tractors building another luxury hotel just in walking distance. MATKOT, hebräisch für Beach-Ball, erforscht die soziale Komplexität am Strand und unser widersprüchliches Verhältnis als Besucher und Nutzer der Natur. The new dance piece of Nir de Volff / TOTAL BRUTAL is about the need to relax, the moment when a dream is falling apart and the process of collecting bits and pieces struggling to construct a new image.
